"This incredibly difficult decision"

By Chloe Angyal

"It's got to be courage and compassion that we show to the young woman making this incredibly difficult decision."
That was John McCain at tonight's Presidential Debate, talking about how we can change American culture into a "culture of life."

In McCain's own words, a woman facing an unwanted pregnancy faces an "incredibly difficult decision."

Decision. Also known as a choice. Except that if John McCain had his druthers, there'd be no choice at all.
"Women, in consultation with their families, their doctors, their religious advisers, are in the best position to make this decision."
That was Barack Obama at tonight's Presidential Debate, talking about why what a woman chooses to do with her body is none of the government's damn business.

I'm going to go ahead and point out that this was the exact position of many pro-slavery people back in the day. That what happened in someone's home is none of the government's damn business. Some things are the government's damn business, and in my opinion, the unending slaughter of unborn children more than qualifies as my government's damn business

Roscoe, I'm going to go out there and say that the comparison you made is a specious, offensive and completely indefensible one, designed to silence feminists for fear of being labeled-"pro-slavery". That kind of comparison is completely unacceptable, and won't be tolerated here, or anywhere else. Back your claims up; otherwise those "claims" become slander.
